This is my first baby and I have no maternity clothes what-so-ever... I've started shopping and found them to be expensive, so was freaking out b/c I have to dress up every day at work and didn't want to spend $500 on new clothes to wear for a few months.

Luckily, a co-worker that is my same size offered me all of her clothes - and all of her sister's clothes! She has 2-3 bins full of summer stuff incuding shorts, swimsuits, work-wear, etc.

I am so excited that I don't have to buy everything brand new!!! Just thought I would share with you lovely JM ladies

Wow you're so lucky! I bought some of mine so far from Kijiji, saved a bunch that way, got 1 pair dress pants, 1 pair khakis, 2 capris, 2 shirts and a dress for $30!

That is lucky! I have a friend who is lending me all of hers but I went shopping on my own yesterday cause I already can't fit into my old clothes. Who knew how comfy these pants are??? I may never wear regular clothes again! Pants with comfy elastic bands? yes please!

That will make life so much easier!

I loaned all my maternity clothes to a "friend" (and I had some cute clothes too) and she still has them. So now I have to start all over. I wish they weren't so expensive.

Meg - I know what you mean. I tried maternity pants on and never want to take them off! I'm sure they won't be as comfortable when I get huge, but right now they are awesome - almost feel like pajama pants!
